of justice, men and women without rank or wealth or title or fame would liberate us all in ways that our children now take for granted. people of all colors and creeds live and learn and walk together, and fight alongside one another and love one another. and judge one another by the content of our character in this greatest nation on earth. to dismiss the magnitude of this progress, to suggest as some sometimes do the little has changed -- that little has changed, that dishonors the courage and sacrifice sacrifice of those who paid the price to march. [cheers and applause] james chaney, andrew goodman, martin luther king, jr. -- they did not die in vain. their victory was great. but we would dishonor those heroes as well to suggest that the work of this nation is somehow complete. the ark of the moral universe may bend towards justice, but it does not bend on its own. to secure the gains this country has made requires constant vigilance, not complacency. whether it is by challenging those who erect new barriers to the vote, or ensure that the scales of justice work equally for all in th

will be saving, each of us. in addition to that, my husband was seeing his doctor at a medical building and he was complaining about his hands hurting. they sent him for x-rays at a place affiliated with the hospital and for taking a couple x-rays of his hands, we got a bill for $750, which flabbergasted us. i was so upset. but once it was submitted to our insurance plan the bill came back to $450, which is an example of how outrageous our islthcare system is in the-- and the expense that it is involved with it. we are currently paying, we have a family of three, about $900 a month. i am self-employed, making not much -- maybe $500 a month. my husband's income is close to $80,000 a year. two years ago, in order to save money, i went on a catastrophic plan, but it ended up not saving us money because we saved $100 a month previous to what we were paying on his family plan. but my deductibles were so high that all of a sudden it was really a bad decision to go that route. my real question for you is, will the family of three be allowed to -- if my husband can get discounted insurance rates, hims
